      I saw this movie last night, and I have to say it was seriously bad. 2/10 for me

        I totally agree with you on the reveal at the start, however they would have had to have given that away in the marketing anyway given the whole premise is evil superman

          It's a good villain origin.

            I couldn't even finish it. The story was terrible. Great idea, didn't like the execution. Acting was great, visuals were great, the story was so dull and frustrating. I'm amazed I got through an hour before I got up and left the theater.

              What made this movie bad to me is that he was just bad for the sake of being his mission was to take over the world but like...for what PURPOSE....WHY y,know there was no reason that explained that, it kinda reminded me of Dragon ball Z how Goku was sent to Earth to rule it but he hit his head and forgot his mission. But atleast in the show it explains why Saiyans took over worlds but in this movie, the kid was just an evil superman thats it....:/ like a what if Superman was actually an evil kid with powers that wannted to take over the world...thats it -_- very disappointing there wasnt more to it then just that. An the rest of his kind were they gonna go to Earth to see or help him take over the world or what kind of race of aliens were they etc. just sooo many unanswered questions and he was just a kid with powers who was evil who wanted to take over the world for NO REASON and if there was a reason for it, we sure dont get NO explanation why. but oh well it was cool seeing him act like an evil Superman tho with the kills other then that movie didnt really care for it.

                The father is grossly overweight and were supposed to believe he’s doing all that running around without being out of breath??? Lol please. I believed the superpowers more than that very OBESE man running around

                  I watched the movie yesterday and I really enjoyed it. I absolutely agree with you, I felt the movie kind of rushed up and I was really expecting some thing more deep but overall the movie was great. I also expected a short background were Brandon (The boy) came from, but I think this is a good thing that they made his original background a mystery. For example I think Brandon come from another diminution (Earth 3) and when he is become a man he probably be Ultra man from DC comic Crime syndicate (That is my thought). Anyway, excellent review as always Chris good job mate.

                            This movie was BORING all the way thru. It had a good idea that was not thought out. This film makes Dark Phoenix looks Oscar worthy.

                              Do you honestly think that not including the crash landing scene
                              would have not given the mystery of where this kid comes from?
                              Are you not aware of trailers?

                                While I appreciate Chris's opinion that there should have been more of a struggle within Brandon, I saw him being "commanded" by the ship to "take the world" as a twist on the whole "Clark activates the Jor-El hologram & it tells him he can/has to be a hero" trope from both Superman (1978) & Man of Steel, so I'm okay with how it happened. That said, I think that's a very minor problem that the Superman movies & this exude: why can't it be the character's own choice to do good or evil? Are they fated to do either?

                                  This movie is objectively terrible. Stop acting like it’s decent. Fuck. I want my money back plus compensation for the gas I spent getting to the theater

                                    This movie was terrible. Only the idea was good. It's like watching the same scene over and over again; Brendan stands in front of someone, camera pans, Brendan is gone! Cue Brendan flying in again with violence.

                                    Also there was no story at all. No character development. Why did he want to kill all these people? Where did he come from?

                                    I can't take anyone serious that passes this off as anything more than watchable.

                                          Yeah but they needed to advertise it as 'evil superman' to get a decent amount of people in the cinema, they really wouldnt have been able to keep the alien part a secret. And also I feel like his motivations were clear enough, he is still just a kid

                                              I too was rooting for this film. These are the type of indy movies I would pay to see in the theater every week.

                                                    Great review, but I don't think taking out the intro crash landing scene would've helped the movie much, since every trailer gives you the idea that the movie is about an unusual, other-worldly kid who becomes evil. I think it would only work for someone going into the movie completely blind knowing nothing about it other than the title.

                                                        I thought it was pretty cool movie. As you said it lacked some character development. He went from nice boy to prince of darkness in 0.2 seconds. I heard so much about it being like evil Superman, but the only things that were like Superman was the adoption and the farm. Other than that it was pretty much a purely evil alien who happens to have superman like powers.

                                                            It was a terrible movie. The acting was wooden. The father was miscast and it seemed as though they rushed through the story to get to the killing. You're welcome.

                                                                This movie sucked a giant gorilla dick. There was zero character development. There was no connections to the relationships between the characters. Extremely predictable. It felt rushed as f***. Horrible! I honestly don't see how this guy sees this movie as a good movie. It really boggles the mind. 😳
